First, major respect is due to HitFix’s Drew McWeeny, who got the chance to not only interview Darren Aronofsky, but dive deep into the idea behind Black Swan, Natalie Portman’s involvement and much, much more.
Our typical interview slots tend to range from 5-10 minutes, but Drew managed to catch Aronofsky in a relaxed state, with plenty of time to spare. The low-key Aronofsky spends nearly 20 minutes discussing Black Swan and his career, and there’s an abundance of quality information to take away from the interview.
Given Black Swan’s immense buzz, and Aronofsky’s impressive résumé, this interview far surpasses quality interaction. It almost feels as though we get to know Darren on a much more personal level, all thanks to this interview.
Check out the video below, and do not, I stress, do not miss Black Swan when it arrives in theaters on Friday!
